The Dhammapada: The Gospel Of The Buddha


THE DHAMMAPADA ~The Gospel of the Buddha~Revised Translation by Paul Smithfrom translation from the Pali of F. Max MullerFrom ancient times to now, the Dhammapada has been regarded as the most succinct expression of the Buddha's teaching and the chief spiritual testament of early Buddhism. In the countries following Buddhism, the influence of the Dhammapada is immeasurable. It is a guidebook for resolving problems of everyday life, and a primer for the instruction in the wisdom of understanding. The admiration the Dhammapada has elicited has not been confined to followers of Buddhism. Wherever it has become known, its moral earnestness, realistic understanding of human life, wisdom and stirring message of a way to freedom from suffering have won for it the devotion and veneration of those responsive to the good and true. 247 pagesCOMMENTS ON PAUL SMITH S VERSION OF HAFIZ S DIVAN .
